2 Works in Lea (Rivers of London)
Time and Destiny are a fickle thing.
Do you know the feeling, when you know that you will regret it for the rest of your life if you don't do something.
And when you can pinpoint years later the exact moment where you went wrong? If you had just reacted differently you would not be here, but somewhere else. somewhere better!
Suche wistful thinking can drive you mad and give you a reason to better yourself. Peter Grant had several of this moments in his life. And as he lay dying in the ruins of the Pergola in Hampstead Heath, he contemplated all this moments. Would he act differently in those moments, if given the chance? hell yes. But those maybes and could have's, should have's are just dust and mist.
But there are also those moments where you do the right thing even if it is not easy in that moment.
Time and Destiny are fickle lovers, they have their favorites, their champions and they love to meddle.
Peter Grant was the first English apprentice wizard in over seventy years. Again.

DC Peter Grant and DCI Thomas Nightingale have been seconded for the day to CO11’s public order operation in Tottenham, North London, where some 40,000 people are expected to demonstrate against worsening race relations in contemporary Britain.
The neighbourhood has a troubled history of violent rioting. The Metropolitan Police are there to maintain order. Peter thinks he can hear Mr Punch laughing.
What could possibly go wrong?
